I have been working on the steering rack, but i still have to finish it. I was really hoping i could put it on without moving anything else, but I either need to move the pedals, or build some sort of drop link/drop box, which I think I have the material for.

I'm not sure that it will be done before the new year and be eligible for the build off. I still could finish it and get a video maybe.

Currently not working on anything, or really planning on working on anything for a little while at least, since I just had four wisdom teeth extracted earlier today. While the pain sucks, I'm still happy that I have finished up this semester and got my grade back with pretty decent marks, definitely improved over my first two semesters.

I'm sure I'll be back at it as soon as I can eat solid foods without pain.

This years rules seem to extend into unfinished builds from last year,
So maybe you will be eligible next year too.

Finished steering, hooked up engine and light bar, installed battery. Just need to install radiator, and replace the starter solenoid that doesnt work and I am waiting on front brake lines in the mail. Once I hook up the radiator tomorrow, I should have it ready for a run to video for the build off. It won't be 100% finished, but it will have working rear brakes at least and run and drive hopefully.

Got the buggy together and started it up. Need to do some fine tuning still, but the main work is done. The rear brakes are hooked up so it has brakes until I get the parts to finish the front. Here is a test drive video.
